'The Praeludium in F sharp minor brings the disc to an arresting conclusion. The performance is exhilarating and Herrick judges the pacing to perfect dramatic ends while also having the opportunity to show off his brilliantly agile pedal technique … this recording, along with its two predecessors in the series, is a first-rate addition to the catalogue. On this evidence, Herrick's next release should be eagerly awaited' (International Record Review)
In the Chorale Fantasia on ‘Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren’, BuxWV212, instead of the usual embellishment and counterpoint, there is lively, rhythmical material passing from manual to manual against the background of a slow, steady harmonic pulse.

La Fantaisie-choral sur «Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren» BuxWV212 est autrement plus moderne. Ici, point d’ornements ni de contrepoints mais un enjoué matériau rythmique passé de manuel en manuel sur fond de lente et regulière pulsation harmonique.

Die Choralfantasia über „Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren“, BuxWV212 ist allgemein moderner angelegt als die zarte Vorgängerin und hat anstelle der üblichen Verzierungen und des Kontrapunkts lebhaft rhythmisches Material, das zwischen den Manualen vor einem Hintergrund aus langsam und stetig pulsierenden Harmonien wechselt.
